About this book

Spertyd | Fiction

Elsa Joubert

This book is the culmination of Elsa Joubert’s autobiographical trilogy that commenced with Wonderlike geweld (2005) and Reisiger (2009). The primary focus is on the writer’s senior years in the retirement home in Cape Town where she resides. Her experiences of the present and not too distant past are inextricably intertwined with the memories of a lifetime ago. These vivid memories are skilfully articulated in vivid detail by one of Afrikaans’ most celebrated writers.
